Unite: Government 'review' of unions no more than a Tory election stunt
16 November 2013
Unite has dismissed the announcement this evening (Saturday, November 16) that the government is to look into union conduct during disputes, with Grangemouth as a focus, as little other than a pre-election stunt that will find no trade union willing to offer it the legitimacy the government seeks.
A Unite spokesman said:
"This review is a sorry attempt by the Coalition to divert attention from the cost of living crisis. Vince Cable may not have noticed but the Grangemouth dispute has been settled. This review is nothing more than a Tory election stunt which no trade unionist will collaborate with."
